Richly colored, the wine delivers a complex nose of cigar box, tobacco leaf, wet forest floor, camphor, red and black currants, blackberry and creme de cassis. Supple, sensuous, elegant and concentrated, the wine focuses on its refined character, purity of fruit and silky textures. Long, vibrant and incredibly refined, the finish builds as it lingers. This gem should start to really unfurl after its 10th birthday and provide fabulous drinking for 25-35 years after that. Not as powerful as some recent vintages, instead this is a stunningly graceful Ducru Beaucaillou. Produced from blending 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, 13.5% ABV. Picking took place September 11 - September 30. Yields were low at close to 30 hectoliters per hectare. To celebrate 300 years of Ducru Beaucaillou, the estate created a special bottling for one-time-only bottle. 97-99 Pts

The debut vintage for the newly renamed Cuvée Spéciale Vieilles Clariettes pops from the glass with its honeysuckle, white flowers, lemon peel, white peach, pear and almond nose.

After the vinification, only 30% of the wine was aged in the neutral tanks while the remainder of the wine was aged in used foudres. The wine is made from 100% Old vine Clairettes. Drink from 2023-2035.
